Recently, a two-step processing method has been employed to prepare this material (21): 1) in a first extrusion and hot stretching step at the processing temperature of the higher-melting component, the fibrillar morphology of the higher-melting component is elaborated; 2) then the material containing microfibers
is processed through extrusion or/and injection molding at the processing temperature of the lower-melting component so that the fiber structure of the dispersed phase can be maintained during this processing step.
are enjoying popularity at all price points.
High-tech new fabrics such as cashwool (wool/cashmere blend), washable wools, and Italian Merino wool share the spotlight with creatively compositioned stretch wovens that include: nylon/spandex shirtings, iridescent linings, washable "suede," PVC blends, microfibers
, viscose, silk/Lycra blends, nylon/Lycra twills and double-faced stretch wools.
New product possibilities are on the horizon for manufacturers of wetlaid nonwovens and specialty papers with the addition of a flat PET fiber to the Cyphrex microfibers
Multiple rows of conductive microfibers
completely surrounding the shaft--literally millions of discharge points to divert harmful shaft currents.
In general, the process is: in a first extrusion and hot stretching step at processing temperature of higher processing-temperature component, the microfibers
of the higher processing-temperature component are formed, and then in a second step, the material containing microfibers
is processed through extrusion, injection molding, and/or compressive molding at the processing temperature of the lower processing-temperature component in order that the microfiber
structure of the dispersed phase can be maintained during this processing step.
If consumers don't know that microfibers
clean up well, having a soft hand may not be enough to close the sale.
To support its commitment to its microfibers
growth platform, Eastman Chemical Company has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Knowlton Technologies, LLC.
POM or EVAC microfibers
have been produced and the features of their s tructure and properties have been investigated.
Making news were a number of new fabrics, such as polyester chenilles with Teflon or Scotchgard finishing, and microfibers
that had patterns syringed into surfaces.
We are, after all, now connected as one by minuscule microfibers
and wires that run over and under the earth.
Eastman says its Cyphrex microfibers
offer a unique combination of capability in variation of size, shape and material, a high level of uniformity and consistency and ease of wetlaid processing.
